Gears

Hello Friends and Family,

I spent the day at my local scrapbook store (LSS) which is Stamps and More by Eleanor in Piedmont, South Carolina.  My friend, Mary and I had a great day volunteering, helping customers and playing.  Mostly Mary helps with the customers and I just flit around playing with all her Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps, creating...going to lunch...then creating some more until the owner kicks us out at closing time.   Today my assignment was to make a sample using Ultra Thick Embossing Powder in Pewter.  Right away I thought of metal...then gears...then this project came to me.

I used the new Cuttlebug - Clock Works embossing folder to emboss some chipboard.  Colored it with Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I cut the gears of chipboard also and embossed them with the pewter UTEE and inked them with Walnut Stain.  I used a label maker to make the labels....

Here is my

See ya later, alligataors.....
